Work Experience

Work experience enhances engineering education for both undergraduates and graduate students alike. Students who participate in engineering internships and the Co-op Program are able to explore career interests and have a competitive advantage when looking for a full-time position upon graduation. ECAC has several programs to help students find out more about specific engineering fields and majors.

Externships give students the opportunity to spend one day with an engineering organization to find out more about the industry and daily life in the workplace. The Co-op Program allows students to gain full-time work experience and academic credit.

An internship is an opportunity for a student of any classification to gain valuable, paid work experience. Interns work full-time during the summer, and commit to work with an employer for one summer only. Students may attempt to work with a different employer each summer to expand their horizons even more.
